Note:Tenable does not support Domain Separation because it requires data management at the individual domain level of a multi-level domain. Domain Separation is a specialty product for ServiceNow and the Tenable app suite features a single un-layered domain for the average enterprise implementation.

The Tenable for ServiceNow applications are highly customizable as every ServiceNow environment tends to be very different. However, Tenable cannot provide ServiceNow specific customization support. This guide provides information for basic customization scenarios. Tenable cannot troubleshoot or support items such as custom CI rules, custom transform maps, and custom field mapping.

Many customers utilize a deployment partner to help set up their instance appropriately for their customer needs. If you are interested, contact your Tenable representative to get information on other companies that have extensive experience with the Tenable for ServiceNow applications.
